Moroccan FM demands immediate end to aggression in Gaza

Morocco’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Nasser Bourita was speaking at a session of the Human Rights Council in Geneva about the role the organization should play as well as the conflict between Israel and Hamas: “Gaza is experiencing an unprecedented crisis and a real humanitarian catastrophe that the international community cannot continue to turn a blind eye to; What made King Mohammed VI, Chairman of the Jerusalem Committee, call for the awakening of the human conscience to stop the killing of human souls honored by God.”

Bourita went on to say that “this will not be done except by a comprehensive and immediate cessation of the Israeli war, ensuring the protection of civilians, stopping the indiscriminate bombing of hospitals, schools, and places of worship, and delivering aid in sufficient quantities,” stressing the need to protect the Palestinians from displacement, and calling for “establishing a political horizon capable of reviving the two-state solution. And the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital.”

It comes as Egypt warned that Israel's planned ground invasion of Rafah in southern Gaza would have "catastrophic repercussions" for peace in the Middle East. Foreign ministers from Arab League countries told the United Nations Human Rights Council that some nations seemingly refused to recognize the suffering in Gaza. Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry said the extreme polarisation exposed by the Gaza war had laid bare the double standards of some members of the UN's top rights body.
